If so, what do you have them create for their families?

There are directions to make these on Pinterest and on the Martha Stewart site. Just be sure you do them several days ahead of when you want to send them home so they will have time to dry. I buy bubble wrap to send them home in so they will arrive home safely!

We paint a mason jar like a snowman, fill it with a string of 20 white lights, put a glove on top for the hat....easy and impressive!

I found the ornaments on Pinterest, they look easy and cute! I bet they smell good, too.

Does the snowman light up? I'm trying to imagine how it looks.

I have students bring in their favorite cookie or candy recipe and make a class cookbook. We also make the cinnamon cookie stars to hang on the tree.

I'm having mine make a calendar of next year. They fill in all the numbers for each month and decorate the page. We're doing one page every other day. I'll use comb binding when they're done.
I tried to find it online but couldn't. I think I heard somebody say she's now working with Scholastic. ???

Two years ago I began ordering a 9 by 12 canvas panel for each child. They are $1.18 each I have each child paint a picture for their family. They have been a huge hit with the parents, and they really are a keepsake. (We put a little note on the back too!) If you are interested let me know I can give you the site...they also have 8 by 10 for 90 cents.

Yes, the snowman lights up. You fill the jar with a string of white lights. The cjord sticks out in the back. The pic didn't upload for some reason. sorry.

Which site do you use for the canvas panels? That's a good idea, so little time.

make votive candle holders. We take small baby food jars, paint on glue, roll it in white glitter (a fine glitter like diamond dust) or sprinkle the glitter over the glue. I then tie a ribbon around the top while still wet and then put a tea light inside. This also works for what ever celebration the child might celebrate. They can choose, red, green, gold, or silver ribbon to be tied around the top. It is very kid friendly, inexpensive, easy and the parents love it.

I have my kids make a special art project that can be framed. I found a great winter scene on Deep Space Sparkle that is easy, inexpensive (I use light blue posterboard cut into 8x10 rectangles), and always look great.

http://www.deepspacesparkle.com/2009...-and-painting/

I have the kids use brown oil pastel for the tree trunk. Then we used watered down white acrylic paint for the snow. Next, we add red acrylic paint highlights in their picture. I usually show pictures of a red fox, etc. and give some ideas (birds, red scarf on a snowman, etc.). Last, we use the same watered down white paint to "flick" it on for falling snow. Easy!
